Text in AD: is text a vector or raster?

Recommended Posts

Hi ecdom1,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Text objects are always created as editable/scalable objects (using both the Artistic Text Tool or the Frame Text Tool). The text will be only rasterised if you export your work to a raster format (like JPG, PNG, etc) or if you intentionally rasterise the text object (right-clicking on it in the Layers panel and selecting Rasterise). Some features may also force the rasterisation of the text objects on export depending of the format you choose to export the project: for example some blend modes are not supported by certain formats, as well as Layer Effects which force the rasterization of the text objects they are applied to.
